Kahome’ is a dwarf form of meadowsweet. It flowers in lacy, rosy pink, pyramid shaped loosely branched flower cluster with crimson stems. The leaves are extremely lovely and unusual, with bright green serrations, of 5-7 pointed segments on an overall heart shape. It has a nice, bushy habit. Stems are showy even after petal fall. Well worth a spot in the garden.
This is an upright, clump-forming perennial that typically grows only 8-12″ tall and features branched, terminal, astilbe-like panicles that flower in summer. Compound-pinnate, leaves (7-9 lance-shaped leaflets each) provide a fern-like appearance. This is such a good foliage plant that is valued as much for its leaves as it is for its flowers.
